Just reuse the original hose end fittings. Typical 8mm bore hose is around 13mm OD

Thanks Ian is the pump connector a simple twist and turn and what about the need to fit news seals?

When using the Oetiker clamp are we looking at single or double ear.

On my k-series pump it was an eye on the end of the hose that fitted to a hollow banjo bolt with a copper washer each side of the eye.

Ian 

You are absolutely correct, banjo fitting, I must have been looking at the LP return side which has a funny in line white plastic valve.

You don't know the size of the copper washers do you.

No, I don't. But you can reuse them. If you want to anneal (soften) them ... once removed (!!!) ... just hold them in a gas flame until cherry red then allow to cool down. Job done.

I thought to anneal copper you heat it to cherry red then quench.

No need to quench copper

I always thought you should quench the copper too, it is the opposite of annealing steel which requires slow cooling.

The rate of cooling is not significant in the case of copper, but quenching in cold water will make the oxidation very easy to wipe off.
